AGRISCIENCE FAIR      
Agriscience Fair will take place virtually.
  • Registration and scientific reports are due July 1. These should be submitted electronically to Dr. Stair at kstair@lsu.edu no later than 11:55pm.
  • On July 8, interview times will be sent to advisors. Each student will be assigned a 20-minute interview slot as well as the link that that they will use to log in.
  • By July 13, posters should be sent electronically to Dr. Stair in PDF format. These can be created using PowerPoint or other technology but should still only be one page just as if they were printed posters. Presentations with multiple slides will not be accepted. These will be sent to the judges in advance along with the research papers.
  • Agriscience Fair will run on July 15 from 12:00pm – 3:00pm. Students will not need to present in front of their posters; instead, Dr. Stair will share her screen so that the poster and the students speaking will both be shown on the screen. Students will present their research, and judges will ask questions, just like when they present at State Convention. The Zoom room will be open from 10:00am – 11:00am prior to the competition if students or teachers would like to test their technology in advance.
  • Log books will not be required, and they will not be needed for students moving forward to national competition.
  • Winners will be announced at 5:00pm via Zoom.
